Do you have a critical inner voice? Join Alexander as he interrogates his own, tries to kill it, then comes for yours. A show about hating yourself and, amongst other things, choosing not to.

Alexander hosts the high-concept podcast Born Yesterday with Andy Barr, is the creator of the cult comedy game show Hell To Play and regularly works with the acclaimed Alternative Comedy Memorial Society and Weirdos collectives. He was a key player in Mark Watson’s Comedy Marathon, was nominated at the Leicester Comedy Awards as part of Consignia and co-orchestrated a huge charity event at the Pleasance Grand in Edinburgh called Dan Vs Food, in which a cast of 25+ comedians (including Ed Gamble, Iain Stirling, Nick Helm, Sophie Duker and Ivo Graham) watched a man called Dan eat his lunch. He has recently appeared on Radio 4, Insane in the Men Brain, Shame is Delicious and The Comedian’s Comedian podcast. Alexander has filmed several stand-up specials and has been a guest lecturer at the Royal College of Art and Fourth Monkey Theatre Company.

"Fun, funny, tremendously engaging and even frequently joyous. He holds the audience in the palm of his hand, pulling big laughs from every quadrant. His act doesn’t get the attention it should do"
Chortle
"A surprisingly powerful show that, even with a dark theme, manages to bring some light into the world"
Broadway Wordl
"Balances hilarity with poignant themes, often taking unexpected turns"
Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
"A sensationally talented performer"
Mumble
"Bennett is undoubtedly a funny man - an hour of self deprecating stories that leaves his audience in stitches"
The List
"Well crafted, acutely observed stand up from a mind constantly at war with its host - Bennett's storytelling skills refresh every routine - an impressive hour"
Fest
"Dark soul bearing comedy mixing laughs with honesty - evokes the spirit of early Johnny Vegas"
Beyond The Joke
"Great comedic timing and the ability to frequently take a joke in an unexpected direction"
